    Default One simple question!

    In order to fill the time until bronte comes back to us, I propose a similar exercise: Someone asks one simple question, and everyone responds back honestly and creatively. Maybe, if I get ambitious, I'll award points and let them be redeemed for something, maybe one of my photos from my Zazzle store... I got a really cool photo of a purple thistle today on a hike.

    Here goes:

    One Simple Question:

    What makes you laugh?

    Default Better 40 than pregnant...

    Moscow, I love a good joke. OK, I just love jokes. They don't always have to hit with the average audience; the more obscure the better for me.

    Here are two of my favorites, from Readers Digest, Sept 2005:


    I went to the 30th reunion of my preschool. I didn't want to go because I've put on like 100 pounds.


    and...


    My wife was in labor with our first child. Things were going pretty well when suddenly she began to shout, "Shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't, didn't, can't!"

    "Doctor, what's wrong with my wife?"

    "Nothing. She's just having contractions."

    Nice Carol! I love going home, because, among other things I get to read several months worth of Reader's Digests while I am there.

    Here's the answer to my own question: What makes me laugh!

    The wry twist of a word. My friends probably hate me, because when I edit papers or read emails, if one word is twisted funny, I'll pick it out and mess with it.

    One of my friends once wrote me an email, and I quote without permission:

    I give you permission to buy me turkey sandwich.

    Of course all he was missing was the simple article "a" but to me when I read it, it sounded like a pirate. He's an accountant, so I was chuckling all day about what an accountant pirate would do, maybe threaten to make you "balance yer scurvy checkbook" or things of that nature.

    I was laughing and heckling him all day because of one little missing article. The wry twisting of language makes me laugh...

    I will answer the question only if I can tweak it slightly. Instead of what makes me laugh.....who makes me laugh?

    My 5 year old son. He has come up with some off the wall/hilarious one liners that just astound me. It is soooo neat just talking with the guy.

    many things make me laugh - one of the best is my 18 month old grandson - has learned to push the button on his little Frankenstein toy so it will start to move and sing the Monster Mash - and watching little guy - Lucas - doing his own version of the dance - truly delightful - they stay young such a short time! (do need to get out the video - will want to embarass him someday when he has kids and grandkids too)

    Talk about weird. The above post (Chasiname) was supposed to be from me. I logged on, posted the message and then realized that I was somehow logged on under Chasiname.

    Chatting with my son is what makes me laugh.

    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........

    Dito with the funny kids, they say and do the darndest things.

    For example...

    My oldest son was helping his younger brother learn to "aim" during potty training sessions. My daughter (age 1 at the time) took every opportunity to sneak a peek at what the boys were doing. One day I took my youngest son into the bathroom and she followed. When it came time for the "aiming", she walked up to the commode, spread her legs slightly, lifted her shirt under her chin and held her outtie belly button firmly with both hands.

    ...now THAT's funny!
